Tuscany Travel Diary. Part II.

Tuscany Travel Diary Part 2_8

I went to Italy on several occasions and every time it makes me think what makes this county a great holiday destination. Perhaps it is the culture, fashion, coffee, architecture, food, language… or the overall la dolce vita feel that I get whenever in Italy. I like people watching, which in fact can be very inspirational, especially when combined with a cup of cappuccino and a cannoli or some other delicious treat.

Italians have a sense of style that is exciting, unconventional and even though quite often outfits seen on Italian streets are not something I would ever dare to wear, I can still appreciate the creativity and its uniqueness. There is something very alluring about the true passion for living so visible in Italy, it is almost like a theatre – affectionate hugs and kisses, fights of lovers, street arguments, unexpected laughter. There is plenty to experience, see and discover in Italy, best to do it with an open mind and not too seriously, because it may spoil all the fun.

I hope to return to beautiful Tuscany one day that is not too far away from today, but before that happens, I wanted to share some more pictures from my recent adventure.

Tuscany Travel Diary. Part I.

Tuscany Travel Diary Part 1_3

For a long time I dreamt about going to Tuscany. In my mind I saw picturesque landscapes, endless green fields and romantic cobblestoned streets in small towns. Finally the dream came true when my husband and I booked holidays in Italy, intending them to be a road trip through Tuscany. Our itinerary was quite ambitious and lead through Florence, Siena, Lucca, Pisa and Cinque Terre to end in Bologna. The last one was our final destination before heading home to Oslo.

Our trip was fantastic and Tuscany proved to be as lovely and charming as we have imagined. Every city we visited had something wonderful to offer with regards to sights, culture, gourmet, wine and atmosphere. Our first days were marked with a state of constant disbelief over the beauty of Tuscan landscapes and monuments. We took hundreds of pictures trying to capture the magic, marvelling at architecture and nature as we progressed with the trip. We have experienced so much during our stay in Italy that to describe it all would take a long while and an even longer Travel Diary post, so I hope that attached pictures will tell a story of our wonderful Tuscan adventure.

LifeStyle Mix. March.

LifeStyle Mix March_1

March was a month full of contrasts, especially when it came to the weather which served winter and spring almost simultaneously. Light coats and silk shirts still need to show some more patience, but every sunnier and warmer morning brings new hope. As for my days, there were somewhat bitter sweet, with good and bad things happening in March. However, all signs make me believe that April is about to bring something truly extraordinary, a long awaited adventure that is about to begin very soon.
